Wellspring Campers Are Just Like You

Girl playing guitar next to boyAt Wellspring, you’ll meet people who are just like you: kids, teens and young adults trying to lose weight, get in shape, have a great summer, and make lifelong friends. At camp you’ll be surrounded by people your age, all working together toward a common goal, supporting each other through new challenges, and celebrating one another’s successes.

Admissions Criteria

WEIGHT: We accept applicants ages 10 to 26 years old who want to adopt a healthier lifestyle or have a history of struggles with their weight and/or relationship to food/fitness. For safety reasons, the applicant needs to be ambulatory and be able to walk unassisted to get to and from activities, the dining hall, nurses office, etc.

ATTITUDE: Campers must view Wellspring as an opportunity. Wellspring will not admit campers who are clearly opposed to attending, or who have a history of significant oppositional behavior or violence.

MEDICAL: Wellspring will not admit campers with medical issues requiring hospitalization.

A non-refundable deposit of $250 to $500 is required at the time of application (depending on the time of year). The earlier you enroll, the lower the deposit.

Step 2: Complete the Enrollment Paperwork. Following receipt of your completed application and deposit, you will receive a confirmation email with enrollment paperwork and instructions on how to log in to your individual Online Account. You will also receive correspondence from your Camp Director who can help you with camp-specific questions. You will need to complete a few online forms as well as several printable forms for you to sign and upload into your Online Account. Families are asked to complete the package at least two weeks before the start of camp. Campers are not officially admitted to Wellspring until all forms in the enrollment packet have been received.

Step 3: Pay the Tuition Balance. The remaining balance of tuition is due at least two weeks before the session start date. Payment can be made by credit card, debit card, certified check or money order. Tuition and listed fees include all expenses while the camper remains at Wellspring, with the following limited exceptions:

  • Any required medical treatment while your child is at camp
  • Customization options
  • Souvenir shopping (optional)

Cancellation Insurance

Families may purchase cancellation insurance from Wellspring for an additional 15% of the final tuition cost. Families who purchase insurance will be entitled to a pro rata tuition refund for all days missed. Cancellation insurance may be selected at the time tuition is paid (at least 8 days before the session start date). If you are worried that your camper may not thrive in the camp environment and is at risk for wanting to leave camp early, you may consider purchasing cancellation insurance.
